Pakistan is ranked as one of the poorest countries on the world for access to clean, safe, uncontaminated water. 22 million people have no access to it at all, and 19,500 children die every year from contaminated water, poor sanitation, and water-borne diseases. But just £150 will build a water hand pump – providing clean drinking water, and transforming the lives of a vulnerable family. And buying a water pump is Zakat, Sadaqah Jariah and Lillah eligible.
We install clean water pumps throughout Pakistan’s most impoverished communities to put an end to this water crisis and keep Pakistani families happy and healthy.
Each water hand pump is installed within a family’s home and provides clean and safe water for years to come. It lasts for a minimum of 10 years and is installed using top-quality equipment. We work with local engineers and contractors to ensure our handpumps are of the highest quality.
We are predominately building hand pumps in rural Pakistan – Multan, Muzaffargarh, Dera Gazi Khan. You can add a name to the plaque for your water pump and this is Zakat and Sadaqah eligible.
We are committed to providing quality education to children in need. At SKT Welfare, we know that with the right foundations, children will go on to succeed, flourish and lead good lives.
Our Hifz programme provides Islamic education, Qur’an and hifz studying to Syrian refugee children in Turkey. For many of these children, a lot of whom are orphans, this is a way for them to stay rooted with their heritage, language and culture.
Giving water is a wonderful form of Sadaqah Jariyah... and it is a significant thing we do at SKT Welfare all year round, but let us do it in the name of the Prophet (saw).
In Yemen, we provide them with monthly water tanks, each containing 3,000 litres of water, at the cost of just £10 per month, for families to use for drinking, cooking, cleaning, and washing.
£60 will provide them clean water for six months.
£120 will provide them with water for an entire year.
